This is my latest project (and my first post for LumberJocks). It’s a clock made from a piece of spalted birch. I had a couple birch trees taken down a few years ago and some months later noticed that some of it was moldy. So I cut off a chunk hoping it wasn’t too far gone and put it in my garage to dry out. In the last few weeks I cleaned it up and made a clock out of it. The movement is a battery powered quartz unit from Klockit. That’s also where I got the numbers and hands. The key used to reinforce the crack is walnut. The finish is shellac.
